ALL rivers in North Somerset are on flood alert after the Met Office issued heavy rain warnings for this morning (Tues).

Weston is set to be soaked again as the South West is under a severe weather warning for rain.

The downpour comes after a weekend of up to 60mph gusts and driving rain which has seen trees felled and fields flooded.

Neil Gibson sent us the dramatic photo opposite through our iwitness24 website.

But the weather is set to clear up a little tomorrow, with no more rain forecast until Thursday.

If you are affected by flooding, call the Environment Agency’s Floodline on 0845 9881188.
